From a female perspective: I love this beer! It tastes perfect with absolutely everything. Drinking it from the tall glass is the only way it should be served. It feels like I drink something exclusive and when I look at the bottle, it is so pretty (sorry guys). I have been a big fan of all Gulpener beers and am so happy that Chateau Neubourg is now served in Atlanta. Only wishing it is going to be served soon in my neck of the woods.

I found this wonderful imported craft in the beautiful " blue bottle" in Atlanta. What a great little find. The bottle itself prompted many comments, inquiries and curious samplings from the other patrons around me.

This pilsner is anything but ordinary. It pours clean and is a visually striking yellow-gold with a very white full bodied head. The taste is very memorable-full with a slightly nutty finish. It is 33 IBU's, but far more sessionable than other European Pilsners. At 5.6 ABV it hits the spot, but is certainly beer that you would want and can have 3-4 in a sitting.

Gulpener's Chateau Neubourg has redefined pilsner for me.

Just moved to Atlanta from Holland and was real happy to find out that they sold Chateau Neubourg in Atlanta. What a great tasting beer, and knowing abit about it's background, I have to say that it's an organic beer made in Holland is enjoyable with many different meals. And I love the Blue Bottle, it compliments the taste of the beer to help you feel like you are really drinking something special.

Yeah, I am a fan of this beer!

Chateau Neubourg is sold now in Atlanta I love the fresh taste and the elegant blue bottle.
I tasted Neubourg on draft when visiting Holland earlier this year.
That was quite an experience. Over there draft beer is served at a temperature of about 50 F. I believe that at that temperature the beer tastes much better
The ABV is 5.50 % , not 5.00%

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into decent lacing. The aroma bready malt, hints of light caramel, and soft spicy noble hops. The taste is like the aroma. It is well balance with a little more hops the malt, but that is what makes a nice Pilsener. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Pilsener that I could easily drink again.

I know it's a gimmick, but i love the blue bottle with relief. Very stylish. And it's not just a pretty package: Strong smell of resin, grass and biscuit, which continues in the taste, although the sweetness gets a bit too much for me after a while. Nice resin bitterness in the aftertaste. A pretty beer that delivers.

Poured from a 330 ml blue bottle. The bottle itself looks so nice, I don't see beers in blue bottles that often.
Its colour is deep golden yellow and it produces a one finger head which stays for relatively ong time.
Strong smell of malts.
Great, strong taste, as bitter as I like it!
Medium thickness on the palate and quite carbonated.

Gulpener Neubourg Pilsner pours about a finger
of foam over a clear golden brew. Carbonation starts
off brisk, but falls off to slow and steady. The nose is
not bad- slightly fruity light barley malt. The flavor is
a bit tart up front, flowery, slightly vinous even, with a mild
peppery herbal hop off the back. Mouthfeel is semi-dry, light,
and crisp. There's a bit of grassy-ness in the aftertaste, and a lot
of lacing left in the glass. The label states that it's brewed from
"ecologically grown summer barley, hops grown from the
brewery's own fields". Ecological it might be, but not to the point
where it gets the USDA organic logo on the label. Not a bad little
pilsner, though. Well worth a try.

Poured a 10.1 oz bottle into a pint glass, producing a nice full head. Golden color. Nice taste, seems more a saison taste then pilsner but a nice finish, smooth throughout. Heavy lacing remained as I enjoyed this brew. Worth trying. I would not hesitate to have another.

Gulpener Chateau Neubourg has a thin, off-white head, a golden, bubbly, somewhat murky appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent- strong barley malt, a touch of hop resin, and biscuit. Taste is similarly strong, with a noticeable sugary sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness for balancing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gulpener Chateau Neubourg finishes mostly dry, filling, and good. Check it out!

Straw coloured pilsner. Thick frothy head. Lots of rising bubbles.
Spicy and aromatic odour. Looks and smells the part.
Sweet malt initially but then ends with a grainy and rather harsh twang.
Better than your standard supermarket lager.
